Genuine Japanese traditional candles Wa-rousoku are made with all careful handwork using Ha-ze sumac wax by OMORI Candles who focuses on producing traditional Japanese candles only with the techniques and materials that have preciously been passed down over generations since the Edo period.
These candles are made with all plant-derived materials and handwork that requires so much care, time and skills. The large and gentle flame of the OMORI candles create very special atmosphere which can only be possible from the way that their candles are crafted. These candles produce little soot and wax running so they burn clean - gentle to humans and environment.
